With the film "Bubble" being pretty much the first movie to simultaneously release the film in theaters & DVD & I think a television broadcast, it got me thinking how this could possibly be more profitable to studios & video stores...
What if after watching a movie in the theater, you have the option to go to the movie theater's video store, present your ticket stub, and be able to purchase the DVD copy of the movie you just watched without any special features. Meaning just the movie itself.
Then a couple months later, video stores have collector's editions with special features of the dvds for purchase. This way, possibly both the theater and video stores could still make profits without hurting each other.
Not sure how video rental would work. Would it be available to rent on the film's theaterical release date or video with special features release date.
I know some movies don't even have special features on their discs whatsoever, but this is just a thought to see what your reactions would be. If this is at all realistically possible.
Keep the standard way how movie are premiered on television.
Oh, yeah. The reason for doing this is to compete with the bootleg DVD copies of films that are still in theaters.
